[david masterson]"bad news is now I have to get a new HD TV for the ediot suite
Ha! For sure! 1080p too.
What I do send the 2nd out of my GPU to my Samsung 46" 1080p HDTV. DVI to HDMI cable. 50' run into another room. I send FCP timeline out to it. Clients tend to want the big screen so it gets them away from over my shoulder when I edit. Great for client screenings and makes it easy to convince them to pay to move from SD to HD.
There are other ways to do this though. Using a Matrox MXO2 would allow you to calibrate the HDTV to bars for color accuracy.

set at 5 frames per...will let her run for the next 30 minutes and see what I get
